We are setting up the Future Drought Fund Drought Resilience Research and Adoption Program.

Adoption and Innovation Hubs

Through this program, there will be 8 Adoption and Innovation Hubs. These hubs will provide networks for researchers, primary producers and community groups to work together to enhance drought resilient practices.

The hubs will service different regions, reflecting Australia’s different farming and climatic zones.

These regions are:

  • southern NSW
  • southern Queensland / northern NSW
  • southwest WA
  • Victoria
  • Top End NT/WA
  • tropical north Queensland
  • South Australia
  • Tasmania

The competitive grants process has now closed.

Hubs will be consortia of research providers and research users, with a regional focus. They will come together to address local drought resilience research, development, extension, adoption and innovation priorities.

Consortium contacts

Our interactive map allowed for interested parties to pin their location and share their details. Organisations used the map to help form a consortium, or inform their decisions about participating in a hub.

The map allowed participants to express their interest in running a hub with other organisations (interested in forming a consortium) or participating in a hub in one or more regions.

Pins can no longer be added to the map, this function ended 17 December 2020. Consortium contact details were available until 23 December 2020.
